Creating community hubs

Creating community hubs
Not everyone has a market within walking distance

Community hubs can help fill gaps in the range of local services that are available within easy reach

With a range of shops and services within walking distance, choices about travel for everyday needs are improved
Having a wider range of services on offer appeals to a wider section of the community and helps reduce the need to travel
The simplest approach is to add services to an existing shop beyond that you could see if a dedicated building could be found or even run a virtual hub
Identify needs, relevant policies, possible locations then future threats and opportunities
Start with your local councils but, beyond that, it depends on the type of hub
